The Holocaust by Bullets

With others out of the frame, a German soldier (in Jodhpurs?) aims his Mauser K-98 at Jews ducking for non-existent cover as death advances on them. Particularly poignant is the mother vainly trying to shield her child. This was a scene repeated a million times during the early stage of the ever building, NAZI industrialized murder of the Jews (and Gypsies) during WWII. This particular one was in Kiev in 1942, sometime after the Wannsee Conference answered the Jewish Question negatively.

Holocaust Remembrance Day is tomorrow.
